Isaac Basire (1704-68),Famous for many maps most commonly a great number in Tindalls continuation of Rapin de Thoyras' History of England. He also contributed maps to the entlemans magazine.His son james(1769-1822) and grandson (1796-1869) also named James; these four generations of Basires were all engravers. Their longetivity produced overlapping careers, which has led to difficulties in attribution of some works..
